Well, for one you should have an oil pressure gauge on it to know what's going on. I even have one on my stock bike. Second the tune is probably crap.

Which tuner were you using anyway? TTS provides Power Commander V base map that should at least get you in the ballpark.

What difference does it make as long as the rods an crank are in spec? Now if he didn't measure, that's a different story as the clearances could have been off.

Build it right or build it again.

Yes, what Ron said about measurement is leading to this question - did he check the colors on the crank and fit bearings based on that or did he actually measure the clearances on the second hand crank in your cases and install bearings based on that ? What was the first disaster 1000 miles ago ? Are you saying you got 15K miles out of this build or that's the mileage on the bike ? Also did the mechanic install OEM bearings and did they spin in the case cutting off oil flow ? - if so you might want to get the coated bearings from Vreeland's and get them pinned in place on your next build, possibly stronger rods, studs and bolts and check the tune as BigPoppa, Mattssi and Ron said. This can be a problem with Big Bores too if not built right but especially with power adders strapped on a stock engine low end on the Turbo's and S/C'd - if not done right by building the engine strength up for the expected additional power output of 150 to 200 % you will find the weak spots - one by one - and it's very expensive.

Doesn't quite work that way with these engines. You need to mike the journals and see what color corresponds to the correct clearance based on those diameters. Those numbers are in the SM.

Arrow What kinds of HP Exhaust Systems can I put on my 2007 Harley Davidson Night Rod...

I need a list of High Performance Exhaust Systems that I can install on my Harley Davidson VRSCDX-V-Rod Night Rod Special. Liquid-cooled, 1130cc Revolution V-twin engine, 5 speed, 120HP, 85ft. Lbs @ 7000rpm.

I want it to be loud like a "Real Harley Davidson" sound when I go down the street, when I Rev the engine. Right now the stock exhaust is too silent, Not loud at all and it doesn't sound like a Real Harley Davidson. Its like it has a silencer exhaust pipes.

Can you guys help me out and list some High end High Performance Exhaust systems that I can install on my Night Rod that will make it sound like a Real Harley Davidson bike. It has to bolt right up..

thanks for your help guys! Awwwright! Spring is here and Summer is around the corner we are riding in the warm, hot and dry weather...
